I have never been the kind of person that loves to decorate their home, but when we started planning our first new home build, I got kind of into the process. I decided to choose high-end fixtures that would really set our home apart, and the difference was astounding. It was amazing to see how much nicer the plumbing fixtures operated, and how enjoyable it was to use them. This blog is all about choosing better plumbing fixtures and understanding how to install them on your own. You never know, you might uncover a new skill that will really benefit you in the future.

2 Ways To Get Clean Pipes

When the pipes in your house are first installed, they are nice and wide open. Over the years, the opening in the pipes starts to narrow. That's because minerals in the water and things that get flushed down the drain catch on the sides. As they catch on the sides, they attract other things to also come stick to the sides, and more and more debris starts to cling to the sides of the pipes, and eventually there is very little space for the water to go through, which leads to slow drains and frustration on your part. Cleaning out your pipes can keep them draining the way that they should. There are a number of ways that you can get your pipes cleaned out. 

Plumber

One thing that you can do is to hire a plumber who can come in and clean your drains out. There are several ways that a plumber can clean out your pipes for you. One thing that they can do is to take parts of your plumbing system apart. That will let them clean out things like traps and curves, which are places that will catch a lot of debris and junk and clog quickly. The plumber can run special brushes through those things to knock the gunk out. They can then run tools down through the rest of your pipes so that they are as clean as the parts they took apart. Those tools can be attached to fiber optic cables so that the device can be wormed down through the pipes and knock everything off. 

Biological Cleaners

Another thing that you can do is to use some biological cleaners. These cleaners will eat away at all the stuff collected on the sides of the pipes. Many of these cleaners have special enzymes that will destroy the stuff on the sides. When you are buying these cleaners, if you get one that is expanding or foaming, it is more likely to get the sides of the pipes because it will be able to cling to everything, giving it time to clear the stuff that is on your pipes.  

Keeping your drains and pipes clean means you will always be able to put stuff down your drains and that they are going to be much less likely to clog. There are several things that you can do to make sure that those drains stay cleared out. Talk to a drain cleaning service to get additional help.
